Generative Questions for This Meeting
  1. Where is writing headed? 
  2. Are we teaching the kind of writing needed by our constituents? 
  3. How will we assess success when we use computers in the electronic classroom? 
  4. Have we lost the "writing" in computers and writing? If so, is a mistake, or are there bigger things we can gain by teaching "writing" in MOOs, or writing to the WWW? 
  5. Do we still call this writing?
